Tuesday, May 12, 2020 – Citizen TV news anchor, Victoria Rubadiri, became a mother at a tender age of 18 years to a beautiful daughter.
The seasoned anchor has done a great job in raising the young girl as a single mother and she has disclosed how she has managed to be a good mom to her daughter.
Speaking in an interview with Double X Agenda, the celebrated media personality said:
“You know for me I got pregnant young and I fell in the stereotypical definition of a single young mom, so for me what I had to let go was that tag “typical single mom” and letting go of that stereotype not from just other people in society but for me.
“Si I made a decision earlier on that I will not be that and as a result the choices I would make to who I’m now, basically determined that.
“Never ever did I want my daughter to grow up having that same residue of my mistakes to be put upon her.
And for her to feel that I’m less than or a second class citizen because I come from this home or because my mother is this.
“She’s grown up a child full of love because I said that is what she is going to experience no matter my circumstances when she came in, and by me making that decision, really has mead her the person she is and has really healed me. Now I ca look back and feel nothing in terms of guilt contamination.
“I truly have grown out of that person and I can now give from a place of healing and wholeness, and I think that is extremely important for any single mom. Ensure that that moment doesn’t not define your journey or you.”
“Come out of it and grow you can re-invent yourself to anyone and anything”
She also had some pieces of advice for other single mothers.
“Don’t be so hard on yourself, you are not going to get it right, its trial and error. And if you came into this club feeling like an impostor because the circumstance wasn’t right, own this time, own the role because the person who is looking at you and relying on you to be the best is that child regardless of what society has said about you/
“The decision is upon you to make it right by being the best mother to that child and that is what I did in my journey, and I can’t Thank God enough and myself for stepping out of that moment of regret and disappointment and charter and a new journey for myself and say this is the woman I going to be not just a mother”
